It seems innocent enough, but this is a MAKE-OR-BREAK question. Sadly, most botch it up and lose the sale, lose the job offer or “lose the girl” (in a dating situation) in the first 30 seconds of a conversation. The brutal truth is, THE ELEVATOR PITCH IS DEAD (was it ever really alive?)
What you REALLY need is a BUMPER STICKER.
Yup. You’ve got 10 seconds to pique their interest, or they’ll be gone.
Cat Breet is really stinkin’ good at helping people answer this tricky question. She honed her skills as a recruiter (which led to a 93% hire rate for her candidates!), then took it to the streets as a speaker / trainer. She’s taught over 100,000 people how to answer this question effectively.
Want her to help you? Join her live on her “More money, freedom & fun show” on 2/23. 3 lucky listeners will be selected to get a real-time, live “bumper sticker” coaching session during her show!
She’s been called a networking ninja, but Cat Breet is really just someone who spent the past 23 years learning how to turn handshakes into dollars (and strangers into lifelong friends). Networking has been her lifeline as a recruiter, sales dude, consultant & business owner.
